Vol. 62, No. 2 


Friday, October 20, 1950 



By Prof. Markey Hill 
President Harry Truman work- 
ed hard to set the stage for his 
San Francisco speech for Tues- 
day night, October 17. He had 
travelled thousands of miles to 
join General Douglas MacArthur 
in a few hours conference at Wake 
Island in the mid-Pacific, then re- 
turned to deliver the speech in 
the place where the United Na- 
tions was born in 1945 (soon after 
Mr. Truman inherited the pres- 
idency). Whatever partisan poli- 
tical overtones there were in the 
trip and the speech, the fact re- 
mains that the president spot- 
lighted the American point of 
view in world affairs. The United 
States is a force to be reckoned 
with by any other aggression that 
Soviet Russia initiates. The U. S. 
will meet force with force where- 
ever necessary to guarantee our 
liberties and those of the United 

How to cross the thirty-eighth 
parallel without drawing Russia 
into the war was the grave con- 
cern of. many as the Korean war 
moved northward. South Korean 
military forces first crossed this 
line in the East and drove success- 
fully north. Meanwhile the Rus- 
sian's delegate showed a strange 
agreeableness in the UN. Finally, 
General MacArthur sent the other 
UN forces agalst the north Kor- 
eans across the 38th parallel. Now 
we are watching with a great deal 
of interest, what we hope, is the 
end of the Korean war. But fol- 
lowing the close of the Korean 
hostilities the great task remains 
of reconstruction and political re- 

There are other trouble spots 
that Russia can use to keep us 
straining and bleeding our econ- 
omy to support resistance. The 
fighting in In do-China, for in- 
stance, has reached the place that 
it has almost taken the spotlight 
from Korea. Here the French are 
put at a disadvantage by being 
identified with colonial imperial- 
ism and reactionary Western con- 
trol. Moreover the French Indo- 
Chinese soldiers are being beaten. 
Communist success here will en- 
danger the entire South Asia area. 

There is also the imminent 
threat of a repetition of the Kor- 
ean pattern of aggression in Ger- 
many by the Eastern Germany sec- 
tion against the Western section. 
To head off such action and to 
aid in the defense of the Western 
German area, should the aggres- 
sion come, the Western Powers 
are pulling for a German police 
force of ten to forty thousands. 
Another proposed step is the 
formulation of peace settlement 
with Germany so that she may be 
able to add her weight in case of 

Perhaps the United Nations as 
a vital force for peace and justice 
has received a new lease on life 
because of the turn of events in 
Korea. Perhaps this points out 
that a world of nations that in- 
sists on the protection of the gen- 
eral welfare by collective action 
will find a way to implement that 
purpose even in the face of strong 
obstructionist tactics. By God's 
help we shall arrive yet.

Part-Time Work 
Gives Students Aid 

Approximately forty per cent 
of this year's students are paying 
at least one-fourth of their ex- 
penses by working part-time, re- 
ports Professor Roy Knight, chair- 
man of the student aid committee. 

A few students are working for 
as much as half of their expenses. 
Jobs on campus consist of mostly 
kitchen or janitor work, while 
several students clerk part time 
in down-town stores and others 
work at filling stations. Calls have 
come in from the cannery for 
workers and some *oys have been 
employed at temporary jobs there. 

Nut picking jobs are still avail- 
able. Mr. Knight reports that sev- 
eral places need workers and any- 
one wishing work is qualified. A 
considerable amount of the off- 
campus work for students consists 
of seasonal work. He explained 
that outdoor work will be over in 
a few weeks so those who want 
work should be doing it now. 

Friends of the school that wish 
to have part time student help in 
baby sitting, housework, or other 
jobs, are urged to call George 
Fox college. A list of students de- 
siring outside work is maintained 
for the purpose of filling these

A platform service was held at 
the Chapel of the Hills in Cherry- 
ville on Sunday night, October 15. 
The theme of the service was 
faith, using the patriarchs of the 
Old Testament as examples. Those

"Young Lincoln" is the story of 
Abe Lincoln's youth and how he 
fought to make a place for him- 
self in the world despite the odds 
against him. It is one of the few 
plays that deal with Lincoln's life 
before he entered politics and be- 
came a well known figure. 

Filled with homey, human sen- 
timents, yet containing laughter, 
most of the scenes in the play are 
authentic, with the exception of 
one or two events which have been 
shifted in chronological order. 

The remaining members of the 
cast selected by Miss Lucy Clark, 
director for the production, was

Fletcher. His wife, Mrs. Rut- 
ledge, is Arleta Wright. Martha, 
a servant at the Rutledge's, is Wil- 
ma Harris, and Betty May Street 
will be Mrs. Bennett Able, one who 
knows 1 everything. Her visiting 
niece, Mary Owens, will be played 
by Marian Perry. 

A young slave girl, Mattie, is 
the part to be played by Marie

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For 
what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a 
little time, and then vanisheth away. 

For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, 
and do this, or that. 

James 5:14, 15 

'Work for the Night Is Coming' 

"Whereas ye know not 
what shall be on the mor- 
row ..." 

Tomorrow is as uncertain 
as the weather. We are here 
to work for today; we may 
he here yet tomorrow, but 
there is no sure promise for 
that. It is, then, our duty — 
our privilege — to grasp the 
greatest opportunity we will 
ever have — today! Our duty 
has been done when we com- 
plete our service for today. We 
shall not be held responsible 
for tomorrow, unless tomor- 
row comes. 

Life, says James, is as a 
vapour. That means life is 

short — too short to say, to- 
morrow when God says today. 

The opportunities of serv- 
ice for God today are just as 
broad as we can see. If our 
line of vision ends at the nose, 
no opportunities will present 
themselves. Look and see! A 
sorrowing friend — a lonesome 
heart — a burdened soul — a 
need for prayer — these are 
today's opportunities. Once 
they present themselves and 
are passed by an unseeing 
eye, those chances are gone, 
never to be reclaimed. 

Today is now — now is the 
hour! "Work, for the night 
is coming ..."

To Help Workers 

By Ray Fitch, President 

The Student Ministerial associa- 
tion was organized to benefit those 
who have a definite call to full 
time Christian service, either as 
pastors, missionaries or evangel- 

Our aims are: 

1. To discuss the mutual 
problems of our future 

2. To share our problems and 
attempt a solution. 

3. To encourage each one in 
his personal call. 

4. To promote greater unity 
and Christian fellowship 
among ourselves. 

We feel that our meeting to- 
gether will not only benefit us in 
our preparation for future work, 
but will also be felt by those about 
us now and by those among whom 
we may work later. 

An inspiring message was 
brought to us by Paul Mills at 
our meeting last Monday night. 
He admonished us to keep the true 
fire, that comes from God, burn- 
ing on the altar of our heart and 
on the altar of our home. 

There is a promising group for 
the SMA this year. Several new 
members have been added and 
others have expressed their de- 
sire to join. 

We are thankful for the conse- 
cration of these new members to 
the Lord and our prayer is that 
the true fire may continue to burn 
in the heart of each one of us. 

Fall Comes With Variety 

Fall has arrived, and with 
it came football, popcorn, col- 
ored leaves, and mud puddles. 

Without football games, 
autumn would be like straw- 
berry ice cream with no 
strawberries ! Spring has 
baseball and winter has bas- 
ketball, but fall claims foot- 
ball as protege. The excite- 
ment and enthusiasm of a 
game, the hoarseness result- 
ing from too much yelling 
for "home team — these are a 
definite part of fall. 

Popcorn is a "must" when 
entering whole-heartedly into 
the spirit of the season after 
summer. From students who 
are starving after an evening 
of study to a hungry football 
fan, popcorn, with its delicious 
aroma and salty taste is sat- 

Red, yellow, green, and 
brown seem to be the favorite 
colors of fall. From the mot- 
ley array of colors, one in the 
forest might be inclined to 
think huge buckets of paint 
had been spilled about at ran- 


Mud puddles present a var- 
iety of difficulties — especial- 
ly at night. Many colds are 
no doubt the result of the vic- 
tim having stumbled into a 
deep mud puddle while strol- 
ling down the road one dark 
night. These same puddles 
are also a menace to recent- 
ly-shined cars. 

There used to be the Sir 
Walter Raleighs that put 
their coats across a pool of 
water in the street so women 
wouldn't get their dainty slip- 
pers wet. Modern women 
wear boots to avoid getting 
shoes dampened by friend 

Puddles can be pleasant, 
however. They afford enjoy- 
ment for small youngsters 
who indulge in the sport of 
"wading" while traveling to 
and from school. The larger 
puddles are also good for sail- 
ing toy boats. 

Football, popcorn, colored 
leaves, mud puddles — these 
are synonymous of fall! 

Campus Clubs 

Various campus organizations 
at George Fox are beginning to 
come into the spotlight again this 
year as they- begin their activities 
for this semester. 

The Foreign Mission Fellowship 
is sponsoring a missionary prayer 
band held in the library at 12:45 
p. m. every Friday. It is the de- 
sire' of the FMF that students 
might have a vital interest in the 

Meeting for the first time this 
year on Tuesday, October 16, the 
Actorators elected new officers. 

Larry Wyman, a junior from 
Homedale, Idaho, was chosen as 
president; secretary- treasurer will 
be sophomore Arleta Wright. 

Since the Actorators are made 
up of students who have had a ma- 
jor speaking part in a dramatic 
production given at GFC, they will 
sponsor a drama to be given in 
the spring. Plans are underway 
for the group to present a chapel 
program soon. 

To further the student interest 
in science, the biology club is 
again being organized under the 
sponsorship of Howard Royle. 

For- their first field trip of the 
year, the club visited the Pacific 
International Livestock Exhibition 
in Portland, October 13. Other 
possible trips include the Museum 
at Oregon State college, Oregon 
Medical School, and the fish 
hatchery at Bonneville Dam. 

A unique system of selecting a 
president is used by the club. Each 
member serves as president of 
the club for a two weeks period. 
Other oficers for this year have 
not yet been selected. 

To Sleep or Eat? 

Serious Question 
Discussed by 'Me' 

By Just Me 
A problem nas arisen (stop me 
if you've heard this one before). 
T wonder 'till I'm weary o'er this 
problem grace and steep; should 
I sleep and lose my breakfast, or 
should I eat and lose my sleep?" 
Seven o'clock is such a horrid 
time to be up and about. 

What a crummy way to start a 
story. Oh .well, no one will read 
it anyway! 

I am going to compare dorm- 
life with back-home life. Up here 
I must needs awaken around six- 
thirty to arrive in time for morn- 
ing eats. At home I slept and 
ignored breakfast. Often times 
mother would gently grab the 
blanket from my bed and inform 
me that the time was ten minutes 
until eight. I would politely thank 
her and mumble, "But Mom, the 
bus doesn't arrive until eight 
o'clock." 'Tis then I get doused. 

Speaking of water, I'm getting 
to be a pretty good swimmer; see- 
ing as how I have to swim to Ger- 
man every day. Miss Sutton will 
appreciate above statement. She's 
getting pretty good, too. 

Getting back to dorm life. We 
have rules here. I broke one the 
other night; also, my head, when 
I did my best to entertain a cer- 
tain couple in the parlor late that 
eve. I proceeded to show them the 
technicalities of hanging from the 
top stairway railing by feet. 
(That's something people walk on, 
plus sidewalk, dirt road, or broad- 

Seconds later I found myself on 
my noggin with my feet dangling 
about in the atmosphere. Lucy 
rushed from her room and looked 
about wild, pardon me, wildly. 
Finding nothing on the ceiling 
she glanced downward (sounds 
logical, what?) and there I was. 
That night I touched the pillow 
at 1:00 sharp. It seems Miss Clark 
doesn't believe in allowing one to 
get by on the breakage of a rule 
without a short lecture, and be- 
lieve me, her long ones are killers. 

One very fascinating tiring is" 
our doorbell. When the sharp peels 
ring out there arises tension in 
the air. Each girl is thinking (ex- 
cept me, and I can't) 'Is someone 
after me?' And it isn't another 
girl we're, I mean they're, think- 
ing about either! 

At home the only one that 
knocked on the door was the next 
door neighbor's boy wanting to 
borrow a tommy-gun or look at 
your little brother's latest collec- 
tion of snakes, or some such other 
hideous contraption. 

It hasn't been my occasion to 
go down to the parlor and find a 
male waiting, as yet. I add the 'as 
yet' in faith. And besides, there's 
always the first time for every- 
thing, they say. This isn't a hint 
to the HH boys, either, just a 
passing suggestion. "I came here 
to be went with. ..." La de da. 

Then there was the time my bed 
decided to take a leave of ab- 
sence from under me. Seems I for- 
got to make it that day. 

I shall cut my story short at 
this time. You're asleep already 
and I'd only awaken you with my 
chatter anyhow. 



Please, dear reader, don't mtnd 
if this column seems all "wet" 
this time — I had to swim into the 
SB office to type it up. 

Now we know who makes all 
the noise in Edwards hall. Mary- 
nette Smith and Donna Jefferson 
were the only girls gone from the 
dorm on the week-end and the 
place wis as quiet as a tomob. 
Not so at Kanyon hall. When the 
upperclassmen left, there was 
still Florene Price, Nancy Hald, 
Apphia Koch, and Lucy Edmund- 
son. They made so much noise 
that Leona White heard every 
word they were saying at 2 o'clock 
in the morning.

Announcing their engagement 
on the evening of Thursday, Oc- 
tober 12, were Bethlin Judd and 
Howard Harmon, both juniors at 
George Fox college. 

As part of the unique announce- 
ment, Carl Judd was presented 
with a large package at the close 
of the meal. In turn it was pass- 
ed to Florene Price, who also dis- 
covered that the box was not hers. 
' The subsequent unwrapping by 
Dick Zeller proved the contents 
to be a corsage for Bethlin which 
was the means of revealing the

most interesting feature to this

work scheduled for the future. The

is particularly outstanding. June, 
the taller of the two, probably will 
be a consecrated teacher.

Junior-Senior Girls 
Consider Life Call 
At Annual Retreat 

"... The Master is coming, and 
calleth for Thee," John 11:28, was 
the theme of the junior and senior 
women's week-end retreat October 
13-15 on Mt. Hood. 

Evangelistic services were held 
Friday and Saturday evenings 
and Saturday morning, with Miss 
Lucy Clark in charge. Classes and 
discussions including personality 
and character development, voca- 
tions, and great Bible women were 
directed by Mrs. Lydia McNichols 
and Mrs. Ruth Brown, on Satur- 
day and Sunday mornings. 

Sunday morning, the girls had 
charge of the service at the Chapel 
of the Hills, a community church 
near Brightwood. A small group 
of the girls stayed to lead the 
services there Sunday evening.

The band will play symphonic

Baker, if suitable instrumentation 
is available. It is urged that all 
who play band instruments report

. with BOB 

The Men's Athletic association 
is running on its own financial 
power this year, according: to 
Coach George Bales, and will con- 
tinue to do so unless something un- 
expected hap- 
pens, proving 
that a program 
of varied college 
sports can be 
carried on at 
G F C without 

But to build 
a program to Bob Saucy 
the point where Sports Editor 
it is self-supporting has put the 
MA A fourteen hundred dollars in 
debt. This is not a big sum in 
comparison to that of the athletic 
programs of many other schools, 
but it is plenty large to have con- 
stantly haunting you, and for this 
reason the MAA is seeking help to 
banish this debt and get started 
on a clean sheet with black ink. 

It is not asking for a larger 
share of the student body fee, for 
once the debt is retired the extra 
money would no longer be needed. 
But rather, it would welcome don- 
ations from organizations and in- 
dividuals who enjoy our college 
sports and would like to see them 
get ahead. 

In an effort to raise money and 
promote interest in GFC sports, 
there are many season tickets 
being offered this year. Already 
one hundred dollars worth of them 
have been sold, but there are many 
left. These tickets sell for five 
dollars and give approximately 
twenty dollars worth of games. So, 
friends and grads, help the MAA 
and get a bargain for yourselves. 

The athletic program should be 
considered as much a part of our 
school as any other division. What 
would a college be without its 
sports? They are needed to round 
out the education and also the 
campus life. So let's all boost the 
MAA out of debt. 

OCE— 41, GFC — 0! Yes, it hap- 
pened again. But despite this non- 
surprising and inevitable setback, 
Coach George Bales was pleased 
with the work of his squad, and 
rightly so, for they played a hard 
game against tremendous odds. It 
was simply the same old truth — 
it's hard to win when outnumber- 

The Quaker eleven gave up only 
twelve points during the first half, 
but from then on the fresh Wolves 
substitutes just over-powered the 
tiring Newnerg crew, A look at 
the statistics may also give a clue 
to the gentle reception the Bales- 
men were given by the yard- 
hungry Wolves. Of a total of 175 
yards penalties, OCE took 160, 
leaving 15 to the Quakers.

Freshmen Become Big Addition to Team; 
Sketches Include Experience, Other Data 

The GFC football team of the the GFC squad. 

De Forrest (Woody) Fletcher,

He is especially rugged on de-

133 pounds and is from Newberg, 
Oregon. Besides making a bid 
for the end position, Vern should 
help in those close games as he 
kicks the point after touchdown. 

next few years will depend large- 
ly on the ability of this year's 
freshmen. In order that you may 
know some of their qualifications, 
a brief sketch of each will be giv- 

Nigel Shockey, freshman, is a 
155 pound fullback from Sweet 
Home, Oregon. Nigel is a fine 
passer and through this is adding 
much to the Quaker offense. His 
previous experience was at the 
Sweet Home high school. 

Carl Judd is a freshman from 
Portland, Oregon. He weighs 150 
pounds and is trying out for half- 
back. He is fast and no doubt will 
see much action during his college

Lewis, Clark Force 
Defeat on Quakers 
To Tune of 27-0 

Lewis and Clark's junior var- 
sity ran over the George Fox 
team on October 7, to the tune of 
27-0 to force upon the GFC men 
their first defeat of the current 

Aided by a few penalties, the 
Quakers managed to stay on fair- 
ly even terms for most of the first 
quarter in spite of the ground 
gaining tactics of diminutive Ray 
Shumaker of the JV's. The first 
period ended with a 6-0 score for 
Lewis and Clark, the score being 
made by Shumaker from the ten. 

The very first play of the sec- 
ond quarter brought the visitors' 
second tally on a 25-yard run by 
left halfback Bill Huntley. This, 
with a successful kick for points 
by Hicks, put the LCers ahead by 
13 points. A ten play drive from 
their own 40 brought the third 
TD for the visitors, the score be- 
ing made by Bill Hicks in a quar- 
terback sneak from the one-yard 
line. A successful conversion kick 
by Hicks gave them a 30-point 
advantage at the close of the first 

With the opening of second half 
play the George Fox men forced 
the JV's to punt and started a 
drive of their own only to be 
stopped by a fumble on their own 
27. Lewis and Clark recovered 
and Shumaker made their final 
score with point four plays later, 
bringing the final count to 27. The 
Quakers then pushed a drive to 
the 28 sparked by quarterback 
Howie Harmon before it was halt- 

The final quarter was charact- 
erized by fumbles, penalties and 
pass interceptions, spectacular of 
which was an interception by Gor- 
don of the JV's on his own 40 
which he carried over to the Quak- 
er 17. Running play put the ball 
on the 12 when the game ended. 

Absent from the Quaker lineup 
and badly missed was tackle Pete 
Fertello, who was out of playing 
commission with a broken foot

OCE Gives Bruins 
Trouncing in Game 

George Fox ran its string to 
nine consecutive scoreless quar- 
ters, as the Bruins took a 41-0 
trouncing in the OCE homecom- 
ing game October 14. 

Playing inspired ball, the Quak- 
ers actually outdid their bigger 
opponents in the opening minutes. 
After twelve minutes, however, 
Monmouth's vaunted offense be- 
gan to roll, and just before the 
end of the first period, the Wolves 
pushed over for their first touch- 
down. Conversion attempt was no 
good, but OCE led 6-0. Minutes 
later, Robin Lee, Monmouth right 
half, took a pitch-out and raced 
56 yards to score. Again the kick 
for point failed. 

Throughout the remainder of 
the half, play was nearly even. 
Both teams fought into opposing 
territory, but were stopped with- 
out making any threats. 

Third quarter play saw the 
Wolves once more take the ad- 
vantage. Alternating three of- 
fensive and two defensive units, 
they pushed through the fast tir- 
ing Quakers for another TD mid- 
way in the third period. Extra 
point kick was perfect, and OCE 
led 19-0. Shortly thereafter, full- 
back Nigel Shockey suffered a 
shoulder injury while making a 
tackle. His absence from the line- 
up hurt the Quaker cause im- 
measurably. During the final 16 
minutes, OCE rolled up 22 points, 
using number one offensive and 
defensive units in an attempt to 
make a good impression before 
their old grads.

Co-Captains Chosen 
By Football Squad 

Chosen to lead the 1950 Quak- 
ed squads as co-captains were sen- 
iors Dick Beebe and Pete Fertello. 

Dick, a 175-pound back is the 
starting left halfback on the cur- 
rent team. But he has had wide 
experience at many other posi- 

In three years at Adrian, Ore- 
gon high school, Dick played 
tackle and fullback. He started at 
George Fox in the line, first at 
tackle and then two years at end. 
This year Coach Bales moved him 
to the halfback spot where so 
far he has become the leading 
ground gainer. 

Also a man of varied football 
experience is Pete Fertello, 190- 
pound tackle on this year's team. 
Pete hails from Camas, Washing- 
ton; where he spent four years on 
the gridiron, playing quarterback 
and tackle. 

Pete played quarterback one 
year at GFC and then switched to 
the line, where he has really dis- 
played some rdugh tackling and

Local gridders will have a 
splendid opportunity to return to 
the victory column as they face 
Reed, October 21, at 2 p. m. on 
the home field. 

George Bales' team will still be 
hampered by the absence of Pete 
Fertello, co-captain and star 
tackle. Fertello injured his foot 
three weeks ago, but is expected 
to be ready to play some time next 
week. Also missing will be Nigel 
Shockey, freshman fullback, who 
has developed into an excellent 
passer. His shoulder injury is 
expected to be healed sufficiently 
for play during November. 

George Fox's homecoming op- 
ponent this year will be the Wil- 
lamette JV's. Time of the^game is 
2 p. m. on November 11. 

Last season, the Quakers were 
victorious in their homecoming 
game with Lewis and Clark JV's, 
19-7. However, the 1950 oppon- 
ent is the squad which gave GFC 
its worst game' of the season, a 
33-0 shellacking.
